There was supposed to be the Pro Football Hall of Fame Game Sunday night - the first game of the 2016 preseason.
The NFL chose to cancel it after discovery of unplayable field conditions.
WTMJ's Greg Matzek revealed the problem - the paint job done on the field earlier Sunday.

"Player safety is enormous in the NFL. I'm sure the NFL put their stamp of approval on this," said Larry McCarren on WTMJ's Packers Gameday after the announcement.
"The party that would be most likely to feel (relieved) is Ted Thompson. He doesn't like exposing his players to live contact when he doesn't have to."
Thompson, the Packers GM, joined NFL brass and Colts officials in discussing field conditions before the decision.
